Many years ago when we were still young and lovely we were in Paris in Monmartre and got persuaded to have our portraits done by two artists. The guy sitting next to me (with his arm around me) was one of the artists, and the other was standing putting the finishing touches on the drawing. Mr. Swiss was sitting next to me enjoying the whole spectacle. We still have the drawings.
I take photos of a lot of flowers, but the protea nutens really got me. I am sure if triffids existed (and they might – you never know) they would look like this. Never touch a protea, you might change into one.
I found a beach in our town, although it was only here for a couple of weeks. It was a few summers ago and someone had the idea of organising Beach Volley Ball. There was plenty of sand organised. I do not know whether it was a success, because I never saw a match being played. It has not happened again, but with the virus around, it probably did not come into the question this year.
I am Ahmed Abdi, a Wordpress blogger and storyteller who searches for stories that inspire people. I love writing because it’s a reflection of how I perceive the world around me. Lost in a world of endless chaos in my childhood, Unforgettable moments of tragedy and triumphs taught me the art of storytelling where I found myself through letter writing and then turned into stories but then sadly had lost everything I wrote for years. In 2018, I decided to create a Wordpress blog site that would allow me to store and retrieve every piece. Stories from my community, city and people are what make my writing so interesting and inspiring! I’m a tea lover so a cup of tea sometimes makes my blog.
